guess according to roberta it's three in some areas. >> roberta breaking the law on friday night, ladies and gentlemen, just so now. [ laughter ] we are going to talk about this morning's commute. la this tuesday morning we are going to move on to the 680 drive in the pleasant hill walnut creek area where it is slow now for that southbound direction. you see traffic at a crawl even the carpool lanes are slow for southbound 680 right here through walnut creek. expect delays on 24. heading for san mateo bridge there is a new accident northbound 280 approaching the highway 92 interchange. two lanes of traffic are shut down and our sensors show that traffic is moving well not doing much to slow down that commute. meanwhile, over at the san mateo bridge, westbound 92 is going to be slow for you all the way across the span. in fact, the toll plaza backup extends to clawiter and you can see our sensor along 92 picking up those delays all the way across the bridge so it's going
to be another long morning for westbound 92. you may want to take the dumbarton bridge instead as your alternate. now, another hot spot this morning has been 580 in the livermore valley. we have that motorcycle accident approaching north livermore avenue. it has the left lane shut down and traffic is backed up from the altamont pass. it's backed up to 205 from mountain house. so from beyond mountain house road so just a terrible morning for this stretch of 580. westbound 580 clocking in with a 40 minute travel time between the altamont pass and the dublin interchange. that's a look at your "kcbs traffic." now to roberta. contrary to what frank says and popular belief, i do have friends. [ laughter ] >> and they're called weather watcher. [ laughter ] >> let's see how many of them are playing with us today. none of them. none of them want to come out and play! [ laughter ] >> okay. >> here we go. 76 degrees according to paul smith in brentwood right now. i want to take a look at this one right here because steve in los altos says that it's already hazy and 60 and at the
peninsula in los altos. thanks, steve. we have the very first "spare the air" day of the season around the santa clara valley with lots of pollution in the air. moderate air quality in the east bay and south-central bay where pollution gets trapped close to the surface around the diablo mountain range. clear skies in san francisco. 57 degrees, this is live weather camera from the transamerica pyramid looking west towards the golden gate bridge. it's? the 60s for the most part out the door. that right there, that is what an offshore flow looks like. the coast is clear. we have two ridges of high pressure. we'll be hot through thursday. then thursday, again, subtropical moisture lifts from the south up in a northerly fashion so we become muggy on thursday and friday. right now, 36 going up to 82 in truckee. it is now 53 going up to 77 in
monterey bay, triple digits around sacramento, stockton and davis. sun-up already happened. by the time it sets, nearly 80 degrees in pacifica today. head to the beach. head west. temperatures 90s today around the peninsula. 90s santa clara valley. 101 concord, clayton, walnut creek through pinole into hercules. 103 discovery bay. 96 santa rosa. cooler muggy. cooler over the weekend. the latest security flaw discovered on android cell potential. as kpix 5's cate caugiran reports, hackers can break into the phones with a simple text message. >> reporter: you don't have to open the message according to a company. hackers just need to send the bug to your smartphone and just like that they control your device and get access to your information on your handset.
>> the attacker can send a file that infects the phone. it can also be triggered through the browser, chrome or firefox. so whenever you go to any website that has this specific vulnerability. >> reporter: google learned of it a few months ago. a spokesman says the security of android users is extremely important to us. so we have already responded quickly to this issue by sending the fix for all android devices to our partners. unlike apple's mobile operating system ios, updates to the android platform are distributed through wireless carriers and phone manufacturers. it's up to them to push out the updates to users. >> so android users could stop using all messaging apps on their phones but that's very unlikely so we need to wait for the patches. >> cate caugiran, kpix 5. >> experts suggest android users update to the latest version even though that does not guarantee the patch has been applied. time now 6:52. firefighters have their hands
